Your Guide to Men's Chains

Your Guide to Men's Chains

Men’s chains can help complete and pull together any look. Dainty Diamond men’s jewelry always fits whether it’s sweats, a suit, or jeans and a dress shirt. But to do so, you need to make sure it’s the right style, width and length for you.

How to find the perfect width?

The preferred width of men’s chains depends on the man’s build. If you're someone who is naturally more slim, then thinner chains would look best. We recommend somewhere between 3mm-4mm. But if you are a more broad person with a bigger build, the wider the chain, the better. 

Besides the build, the width of the chain is always based on personal preference.

How to find the perfect length?

Depending on your build can determine the length of chain required. But at the same time, it depends on the shirt. Whether you’re looking to hide it beneath your shirt or wear it exposed can give a completely different look. Here’s a quick guide to chain lengths:

16”-18”: standard length for women’s chain. On men, this length usually sits as a choker style around the baseline of the neck. 

20”-24”: This is the most common chain length for men. That’s because it can be worn inside or outside of men’s clothing and still looks great. As a general rule of the thumb, the broader you are as a person, the longer the chain you’ll need.

Gold or Silver?

When it comes to deciding between a gold or silver chain, that depends on personal preference. But what we will say is that sterling silver and gold vermeil pieces are definitely more cost-friendly than a solid gold chain. At the end of the day, it’ll be based on personal preference.
